In MEMORY OF NEROLI COLVIN
The Bathurst Multicultural Storytelling Festival in 2019 and 2020 honour the memory of Neroli Colvin.
Neroli’s PhD was on cultural diversity in regional education and she started working on this festival when we first visited Bathurst.
The festival is possible because of donations kindly made towards Neroli’s legacy.
Here's Neroli's obituary from The Sydney Morning Herald.
